I want to Set you free And wait for you to come back to me Set you free I don’t need you no more We should let it be Cos it’s a catastrophe Let it be We don’t need it no more You probably said to me a thousand times Please please remember to make up your mind Although I’ve told you I’ll tell you again 2 + 6 + 4 does not equal 10 And so I say Wait for me I never wanted you to be free Wait for me I need you some more We could go out again You might be my only friend Go out again We’ve been here before I know I’ve said to you a thousand times Please please remember to make up your mind Although I’ve told you I’ll tell you again 2 + 6 + 4 does not equal 10 2 + 6 plus + 4 does not equal ten 2 + 6 plus + 4 does not equal ten Not equal not equal not equal ten Not equal not equal not equal ten So here we are Let me be Our time was such a waste you see Let me be I need something more You should hit the road Get out I wanna be alone Hit the road I don't need you no more

I saw your face When I wasn’t in the best place You came into my heart I never wanted us to be apart Sometimes I see you around You always make such a beautiful sound Something said to me that day Hold onto that girl don’t let her get away But there’s always something holding me back I fall into the trap Something’s holding me back Hold me back Where do I go from here I’m sick of sitting alone drinking beer Introspection we’ll save for a rainy day I’d rather see your smile anyway What’s wrong with wanting to hold your hand I think I’ll go and I’ll start up another band I’ll sing songs about you Make music and see my dreams come true But there’s always something holding me back I fall into the trap Something’s holding me back Hold me back I saw your face When I wasn’t in the best place You you came into my heart I never wanted us to be apart I’d like for you to stick around for a while You’ve got such a beautiful smile I only wish that I could say You’d be mine for I’d be yours any day But there’s always something holding me back I fall into the trap Something’s holding me back Hold me back It’s holding me back It’s holding me back Stop holding me back Stop holding me back

How are we expected to know Then suddenly when it’s time to go We realise that What we know And then it’s never never never time to go Why do we hold to the simple things And why do we bare a grudge against them Why do we control all our feelings And why do we Swear at your sins I said hold my glance Take the stance Never do we have a second chance A second chance Consciously do we make the thought Only though it never hits the heart Yet still we drive Still we drive Still we drive On and on in the passenger side I said hold my glance Take the stance Never do we have a second chance A second chance Yet still we drive Still we drive Still we drive On and on in the passenger side Yet still we drive Still we drive Still we drive On and on in the passenger side Yet still we drive Still we drive Still we drive On and on In the passenger side The passenger side The passenger side

Pot Plot 05:16
Is it still raining there in Mexico It keeps on hailing down here on me Exit still got purple glow Here we go Stop Still Nobody knows What happened to the X show And where did he go If I go crazy Will you be with me And if it happens will you lie to me Cos I can’t do anything anymore It’s not like I used to when small So if I go crazy Would you be with me And when it happens Would you still lie to me And tell me it’s not real Please tell me it’s not real Can’t you feel That I’m breaking down I’m breaking down And I believe in the nature of sound Cos it’s a pot plot give it up Pot plot give it up pot plot Give it up pot plot

Corrupted by memories Which feel less foul over time It looks like we’re reacting to the reactions We’re already reacting to It’s a kinder good tomorrow Corrupted by politicians News media - TV & Print You’re never really sure what the real truth is And corporation stealing at its zenith It’s a kinder good tomorrow It’s a kinder good tomorrow Tomorrow doesn’t have to be tainted by yesterday Cos yesterday feels old right now Today is here and I need some Tomorrow doesn’t have to be tainted by yesterday Cos yesterday feels old right now Today is here and I need some hope Yeah I need some hope Yeah I need some hope It’s a kinder good tomorrow It’s a kinder good tomorrow We’re searching for Why isn’t it today Why isn’t it today Why isn’t it today

Bad Radio 03:42
I was driving in my car just the other day When I ran out of CD’s to play So I thought I’d give the radio a chance I tuned to FM started wetting my pants As it turned out what I didn’t know Was that my song was stealing the show Oh every channel I turned to you see Turns out that they were playing me So no more would I be Thinking they don’t play me Now it seems I’m on top Got bad radio don’t want pop Now I’m out doing shows across the U S of A Next stop is Canada then Europe they say Paris, Brussels, Hamburg, Berlin then Czech Next stop London boy I’ll be a wreck Now everywhere that I do go Everybody wants me on their TV show All I have to do is a song and a dance But every time I do it I think will this last So how did I get number one I was just having fun That means you’re singing you see You’ve got bad radio just like me I can’t believe it you see That I made it onto the TV The world is watching me Millions of people, not just 2 or 3 Is there a message they see Somewhere hidden deep inside of me Maybe it’s listening for free That bad radio sits atop the tree Is this Is this a dream Is this a dream So now I’m wondering just where this will lead Other celebrities tell me what I must heed What I must do and where I must hang Otherwise it might just all end with a bang What I said you mean fame is fleeting That everything I have could turn to nothing No message, no hope, no income, no job Well next thing you know I’ll be a lazy slob So maybe that’s why we listen to crap Cos every time you sing it you fall in a trap So next time you sing it you’ll see You’ll have got bad radio just like me
